HC Deb 12 April 1921 vol 140 cc944-5W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that, as a reprisal for attacks on policemen, three young men, named Charles Slevin, John Devine, and Daniel Doherty, were dragged from their beds at Dromore, County Tyrone, by special constables and brutally murdered on the roadside; and what steps have been taken to bring the murderers to justice?


I have not yet received the report of the Courts of Inquiry in lieu of inquest in these cases, but according to the police report no evidence has yet been obtained as to the persons by whom these murders were committed. The matter is being carefully investigated, and the hon. and learned Member may rest assured that all possible steps will be taken to bring the murderers to justice.
